Enviro bags by elemental

Great product. Doesnt fit the jimmys thunderbox though. I had to tape two together. Bags need to be at least 40cm on a side to stretch over the thunderbox edges. Still love snowy's though!

Worked fine for us

Used the first bag while camping on the Eyre hwy. we thundered in the bag and it worked fine in the bucket toilet we have. Would recommend to any. Far easier than the portable toilet we had and the kids are less likely to overfill it.

Great sturdy bags!

Just the heads up, these don't perish immediately. Its safe to use for your business and later on it decomposes. Great purchase!


So what is the right way to dispose of these bags?1 answer

So what is the right way to dispose of these bags with their waste? Down the toilet that is town sewerage and what about toilets that use a septic tank?

- Aongatete Outdoor Education Centre(1 week ago)

G'day Karen,

I wasn't entirely sure about this, so I gave Elemental a call to see what they recommended for disposing of their Bio-degradable Toilet Bag Liners. They told me that because they're bio-degradable, you can bury them and they'll break down. The same goes for septic tanks, if you flush them, they'll break down.

Seal-able?1 answer

Hello I was wondering how these bags seal and if it is ok to dispose of them in a rubbish bin? (As one would disposable nappies) Thanks

- Geelong(6 months ago)

G'day Mike,

Unfortunately, the Elemental Bio-degradable Toilet Bag Liners aren't able to be sealed. You'd need to knot the bag.

In terms of disposal, it really comes down to local regulations of the area you are travelling in. Some councils/land owners don't mind you throwing in bins, other prefer you use dump points. Best to check with them.

Is it safe to use the toilet chemicals with these bags?1 answer

Hi, can you use a biodegradable toilet additive such as biomagic with these for a day or two to control the smell? I'm concerned it might accelerate the bags breakdown. Some of the other brands with bags come with a powder you add to help with odour etc.

G'day Mel, 

I've just given the supplier a call about your questions, and this is what they've told me. 

Elemental have told me that they don't think it's a good idea to add any chemicals to the waste, as they're not sure if there would be an issue with acceleration, so we wouldn't recommend using Biomagic or any other powders. 

These bio-degradable bags are also not ideal for storing waste in for long periods of time, they're designed to be one use, and then disposed of at an appropriate dump point as soon as possible.

Will these bags fit the Kookaburra Bush Dunny?1 answer

I have the bush dunny - wiil these bags open up enough to fit the square bush dunny?

- Brisbane(1 year ago)

They won't fit sorry Daz. We have tried to get replacement bags for the Bush Dunny before with no success. We recommend the use of biodegradable garbage bags as an alternative, or just digging a really deep hole, which is what the Bush Dunny is really designed for.

Are these bags suitable for disposal in composting ("long drop") toilets?3 answers

As commonly found at roadside rest areas, picnic areas, and the like.

- Hunters Hill(1 year ago)

G'day Chris,

I've just had a look at the packaging on the Elemental Toilet Bag Liners, and they are 100% biodegradeable so they should be fine to dispose of in long drop toilets.

It is always a good idea to do a quick double check before disposing of waste, as these things can be a little tricky and you don't want to get yourself into a mess so to speak! 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

Not a good idea to dispose in long drops as they are usually pumped out and anything other than the three P's can cause problems with the pumping equipment.

- Adelaide(9 months ago)

G'day FBS003, 

Thanks for letting us know, this is a topic that we always recommend that people do their homework on before they dispose of waste at any disposal point (where it be a longdrop or otherwise) just to be on the safe side.

how long does bio degradable toilet bag last before it starts breaking down.1 answer

I have a separett toilet in my demountable. I usually change the bags every two weeks. Would your liner last this long?

- NERANG, QLD(2 years ago)
Hi Karen, I wouldn't rely on these bags for two weeks. While there is nothing stated about just how long they will last before breaking down, they are designed for use in temporary toilets at campsites which are generally used for a day or two before being emptied or buried, much more than this and they may start leaking.

How does one dispose of the bag & its contents?1 answer

Dig a hole & bury it or somehow else??

- Scarborough(2 years ago)
G'day Denise, As these bags are bio-degradable, we'd feel comfortable digging a hole and burying the bag. Hope this helps!

L * W * D ? Wondering if it will fit my portaloo plus how many in pack1 answer

- elwood(3 years ago)
Thanks for your query Nicola, these biodegradable toilet liners fit a bucket style toilet of 35cm dimaeter and 35cm deep. They should have enough depth to cater for most portable toilets, you will need to check the top diameter of your loo to make sure the top of the liner can be securely folded over the lip.
